?? Various artists, "Christmas From the Blue Note" (Blue Note). This mixed-bag compilation too often sacrifices coherence for novelty and hipness. Self-conscious modernism subverts "Deck the Halls" by singer Kate Davis and saxophonist George Garzone. Jimmy Scott, past his best days, sings a "Silent Night" as touching as it is painfully tentative. Vibraphonist Stefon Harris ably navigates through Rich Shemaria's layered writing on "Greensleeves. " A Latinate "We Three Kings" by drummer Francisco Mela is fine but Maya Azucena's gutbucket blues treatment of "O Holy Night" misses the point.

December 16, 2001 | FRED DICKEY, Fred Dickey last wrote for the magazine about the criminal investivation of a San Diego wildlife activist
Through the plate glass separating prisoners from visitors, John Patrick Sheridan talks about the secret he kept for a decade. He explains how loyalty to a drinking buddy and a promise of $25,000 were enough for him to murder someone. He describes how he planned the killing and rehearsed it, and then pulled it off without a hitch. Yes, he says, he was lucky for a first-time hit man. Lucky, that is, except for one thing.

Ireland's best scoring chance in a 0-0 tie with Norway was John Sheridan's second-half attempt to, at full run, chip a shot over the head of Norway goalie Erik Thorstvedt. And Sheridan almost did it. "Sheridan's chip shot was like watching something in slow motion," Charlton said. "It floated and floated. John said he thought he made it, but then the wind seemed to catch it." The ball settled softly into the net--but on top of the goal.

John Harkes of Kearny, N.J., became the first American to play a soccer game in London's hallowed Wembley Stadium , when he was on the field for the first 87 minutes of Sheffield Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the FA League Cup final. John Sheridan scored from 22 yards out in the 37th minute as Sheffield Wednesday became the first English second division team since 1975 and only the fifth in 30 years to win the League Cup final.

Thank you for printing the story about John Sheridan ("A Hit Man's Guilt," by Fred Dickey, Dec. 16). Before Sept. 11, I believed that everyone was basically good inside. People thought I was being naive, but I simply called it having faith in humanity. I even thought that murderers pray for their victims' souls. But when I woke up to the terrified cries on that September morning, my whole belief system shattered. Dickey's article allowed me to regain my beliefs. Although Sheridan's actions were wrong, it was enough for me that he realized what he had done and had started to repent for it. I hope people have not given up on the hope that there is good in everyone, even if it's just a little bit. Nina Besin Baldwin Park

An Orange County judge Tuesday sentenced a former California Highway Patrol officer to 25 years to life in prison for ordering the murder of his business partner in 1989, a crime solved more than a decade later when the hit man confessed. A jury convicted Michael Woods of first-degree murder last year for paying $50,000 to have his partner in a string of Los Angeles County strip clubs killed.

Los Alamitos had two-time defending champion Woodbridge down to its last point twice, but the Griffins were unable to close the door and lost, 10-8, Tuesday in quarterfinals of the Southern Section Division I boys' tennis playoffs at Woodbridge. Woodbridge senior Adam Artunian, who saved a set point in the second round against sophomore Jon Nafarette, saved two set points in the third round against freshman Drew Hoskins.

A former strip club executive was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday for his role in the 1989 slaying of a former CHP officer in Orange County. David Amos admitted during testimony last summer that he was paid $50,000 for finding a hit man to kill burly ex-CHP officer Horace "Big Mac" McKenna. His testimony helped lead to the conviction of Michael Woods, who authorities say was fighting with McKenna over a string of Los Angeles strip clubs.

* COACH: Jack Charlton. * KEY PLAYERS: Roy Keane, Tony Cascarino, Pat Bonner. * STRENGTHS: The Irish might not be the most attractive team in the world to watch, but they have learned to perfection the art of harrying and disrupting opponents. Italy, Mexico and Norway will be given little chance to play with the ball. Keane and Cascarino are effective strikers. Bonner is the country's most-capped player and will need to be at his best.
